The new Gelendzhik Airport in Russia speaks Italian. Studio Fuksas, the Italian architecture practise led by Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas, won the competition for the construction of the airport that will be, for size and importance, the new landmark of Gelendzhik.

The Airport will connect Gelendzhik, considered the third most popular Black Sea resort city in Russia, to eleven Russian destinations, including Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kazan and Yekaterinburg. 

According to the architects, the project is inspired by the flight of birds, thus representing a dynamic and poetic movement and a strong connection with nature. 

As the city’s new gateway, the Airport will guarantee the best quality in terms of space experience and natural light control, without forgetting local values; consequently, great importance is given to the surrounding landscape and to a massive use of typical local trees

Studio Fuksas also designed the circulation system of the airport area: a one-way ring road, which distributes car and bus flows through the short and long-term parking entrances; the dedicated drop-off zones in front of the main entrance and the bus parking areas; on the other hand, logistical systems are directed to the west side of the terminal, away from the view of passengers. 

Finally, the parking lots are designed not only as service spaces but also as green areas: the goal is always to highlight qualities belonging to the local natural environment and create a structure completely integrated with the landscape.
